pretty much have my Demas DR narrowed down caliber wise. it will be either a 7x65R regulated with the Norma 156 gr.
or I will do it in 30-06. the question in 06 is what weight bullet do i regulate with. I am partial to 150gr remington Core lokt for whitetails which is what it will be used fo rmostly. However the occasional black bear and maybe a moose hunt thrown in. anyone have experiece shooting the 06 regulated with 150's and and switching to a heavier load for under 100 yard and getting decent regulation??

I know, rimmed would be best but the 06 has its points of value and i like the cartridge and its cheap to get 06 ammo to practice with since i dont have time to handload.

They'll regulate it for what you want IF they have that ammo available over there. Ask them what's available.

If you are putting moose into the mix, I would choose a 180gr Nosler partition for a 30-06.

Personally I'd go for the 180 or better yet a 200 if available. I load Partitions when ever possible for hunting around here.
Since you're unlikely to run into any big brown fuzzy critters in NY state the 150's are plenty for deer sized beasts. I got my first deer with an `06 and Remmy 150's many moons ago.

I use 150 CL PSP for white tails and they kill very quickly. Just was pondering the utility of regulation at a slightly heavier weight for a lttile more versatility. however, 95% of its use will be on white tails in the NE.

If that works for you down there then keep with it. A 180 will do as much or more but not with as flat of an arc.
I've got a 300 H&H coming in and I hope it's regulated with a 220. We'll see.

Mike,

I had the chance to view a roomful of Ferlach guns. What magnificent workmanship. Even the mayor was a gunsmith. Hope you post some pictures.

Pete
